Today is my sweet husband’s birthday. Earlier today, I took some pictures with Jessica telling Daddy happy birthday. I didn’t think I’d have time to actually post it, because I was trying to finish making the card for him, but she is taking a super long afternoon nap, so here it is.
James is the best husband and daddy and I wanted to make him a super special card and I think it turned out fabulous. A gift on the other hand. I didn’t get him one. Yet? We’re not really big on exchanging gifts for our birthdays. I never know what to get him and he knows I just get myself gifts every time I get something new crafty-wise. Although, I do have a framed picture of Jessica for him to take to work. I guess that is a gift.
